LR1MICK: were you able to determine what caused the engine to run backwards?
I had a similar problem but did not come to a real conclusion as to why it was happening.

Hi Ajaffa1, I buy hard to find piston rings from this guy in Greece. He sells them by bore size and ring thickness, and I have had good service from him.

In his Ebay store click on "cylinders, pistons, mufflers" then click on" individual piston rings". You can choose based on your old rings, and if necessary repair a worn ring groove by purchasing a  thicker ring, them widening your worn ring groove in a lathe to match the new ring.

He advertises rings from 19mm to 450mm. That's 3/4 inch to 18 inches. That's some range :o


The Ebay ad for the Kubota has a link to a PDF with the engine specs. Under the heading "Reversed Engine Revolution and Remedies" it speaks of how to tell and what to do if the engine runs in reverse.
Some months ago I experienced the same phenomenon with a Yanmar Clone. Maybe this is not such a rare occurrence after all.

Hello all, can anyone please measure the diameter of the 1115 flywheel?

Has anyone tried driving the gen-head off the engine flywheel rim like we do with the Listeroids?

I am trying to get a rough idea of the size pulley that would be needed for the alternator in order to reduce engine operating RPM.

I don't have a Chinese horizontal yet, but I've been drooling over the 1130's on Alibaba.com and I hope to have two along with some spares by the time my birthday rolls around.

I figure I could reduce the RPM on that monster and still run most anything in the house.

Wow. I wouldn't have guessed they were that heavy.
I can (barely) lift one onto the crankshaft by myself; I guess I am stronger than I thought.
I'm 6'3" and 147 lbs, and my son calls me "Skeletor" :laugh:

Hi Tim2, welcome to the forum.
The newer AC1 piston ring sets that I have seen use a thinner top ring than the older style ring sets.
The 2nd ring and the oil scraper ring worked on the old style AC1 piston that I was repairing.

According to this site the AB1 and AC1 use the same piston number. http://lister-petter.com/s/parts-spares/1/piston-assemblies

On several occasions in the past I have purchased piston rings from the Ebay vendor mentioned by Listard-JP2 with good results.

Good luck with your project.

Glort: Thank you for your concern; I share your views regarding a cure and treatment for cancer.
I wish the best for you and all members here. I will let you know how it goes.

Hi all, I'm late to the discussion but since I am newly suspected of having lymphoma I thought I would add my 2 cents as well.
After my brother died a few years ago following chemo and radiation due to stomach cancer I told myself if I ever faced cancer I would try a natural route. Not to bother you with too much detail of my medical history, I have been looking into Rick Simpson Oil on YouTube.
There are loads of testimonies of people healing themselves using this stuff from all sorts of cancer, usually they try it out of desperation after chemo and radiation have failed, they are pronounced stage 4 and sent home to die.
I sure do not intend to go the chemo and radiation route after what my brother went through, and as I told my pharmacist a couple of days ago, if cancer patients were convinced that eating dog poo would cure them, every dog on this island would have a group pf patients following it around. I think she finally got the picture of the level of desperation people feel when facing a gruesome death.
As for me, I will gladly choose Rick Simpson Oil every time over Chemo and dog poo:)

Looking good so far. :)

The camshaft must be removed before the lower half of the lifter can be removed.

Thank you Dieselgman; very interesting (and tempting :laugh:)

Hi Dieselgman, I am curious; are your 18/1 engines the 155mm x 177mm bore and stroke models or some other combination?

What is the current price of your 18/1's?

Welcome sirpedrosa, and congratulations on the new project; considering it's age I would call it in great original condition.

I too am a fan of the PAZ1, and it is certainly in better condition than any of the ones I have, especially the sheet metal and fuel tank.

What are you planning on installing it on?
